Tell us about your favorite meal, either to eat or to prepare. Does it just taste great, or does it have other associations?
Photographers, artists, poets: show us FOOD.
When I was a young mom I cooked and baked a lot. But after my divorce and taking care of so many patients I have faded from the kitchen. EASY is my thought. Never stay too long in the kitchen.
Even the foods I make for Al are easy. I have a page on Facebook called It may not be healthy, but it’s darn easy. https://www.facebook.com/pages/It-May-Not-Be-Healthy-But-Its-Darn-Good-n-Easy/347995258619883
If you look on there you will see I like recipes that are really good with few ingredients. I make a lot of home-made soups here at home. I also use my crock pot quite a bit. Partly because it is easy, partly because Al has trouble chewing meat. The crock pot makes meats very tender.
I make BBQ chicken a lot here. Here is the recipe I use. I use this recipe for chicken, chops and ribs. I absolutely love it!
Crock-Pot BBQ Ribs Recipe
The meat falls off the bone as you take them out of the crock pot!
4 pounds Ribs of your choice
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoons vinegar
salt and pepper to taste
1 bottle of sweet baby rays BBQ
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoons oregano
In a bowl, mix together all the ingredients except for the ribs themselves.
Place ribs in slow cooker. Pour sauce over ribs, and turn to coat.
Cover, and cook on Low 6 to 8 hours, or until ribs are tender.
Here is another recipe I use, and one that is on the link I gave you.
No Bake Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Balls
1-18 oz. jar of smooth or chunky peanut butter – I prefer smooth
1 – 16 oz. bag of confectioners sugar
1/4 c. butter, melted
chocolate almond bark
chocolate candy melts
12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips & 2 tsp. shortening
In a large bowl, stir together the peanut butter, confectioners sugar and melted butter until the mixture is crumbly. For the next step, the best way that I’ve found to make a smooth filling is to use your hands to mix everything together.
Line a baking sheet with foil. Roll the peanut butter filling into 1 inch balls and line the baking sheet with rows of the balls. Set the baking sheet in the freezer for 5-7 minutes to chill the peanut butter balls for easier dipping.
While the peanut butter balls are chilling, melt the chocolate in the microwave in a microwave safe bowl that is deep enough for dipping. I melted 6 blocks of chocolate almond bark at a time, stirring at 45 second intervals until smooth.
Remove the baking sheet from the freezer. Insert a toothpick or wooden skewer into a peanut butter ball and then dip it into the chocolate, turning quickly to cover the entire candy. Place onto a second baking tray that has also been lined with foil. Swirl the chocolate on the top of each candy for a pretty design. Refrigerate until the chocolate had completely dried.
Store the candies in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
So you can see that I make home-made foods, I just don’t spend all day in the kitchen.
I had no idea that was you behind that facebook page… I’m gaining pounds just looking at those pictures. 🙂 I like easy things too, but I will put the time in for good things like homemade cinnamon rolls (prep to finish is about 3 hours) sauerkraut casserole with real mashed potatoes, I think those are the only two things I made that will take a while. The rest is pretty quick. Thank you so much for the facebook page! I generally made vegetarian meals for my lunches at work because I’ve had problems with chicken being too dry or turkey not tasting right or not lasting. Right now I’m hooked on black bean corn tortillas and refried bean corn tortillas. Very quick and easy and pretty good for you.. 🙂
chicken in a crock pot is always guaranteed moist!!!!
I just assumed you always knew that was my page. Sorry my friend. Yes, that is my page!!!! LOL
yeah, but I’m the only one who eats chicken.. so it would be crock pot chicken for weeks… I need a smaller crock pot to make 4-6 meals for myself.
yes I agree, just cut the recipe in half, that is what I do for Al and me
Yum for the ribs!
it is really good!
I heart all sorts of food. My faves are enchilada dinners, breaded skirt steak sammiches, & Mexican shrimp cocktail. For the holidays I heart Thanksgiving dinner – minus the turkey – I prefer ham. My hubby’s sweet potato casserole is the best!
As far as me in the kitchen – I limit my appearances for safety reasons:
I am looking for a fantastic sweet potato casserole if you are interested in sharing your recipe! I have never had an enchilada
I love hte slow cooker and wiht that I can’t do so much wrong and burn stuff. You are right the meat always is lovely and tender, and my children like my food cooked in there. Big bonus. You are a great cook I know and you enjoy it. I am more like RoSy I am not so keen on cooking but I don’t have someone like her to do it for me. I do like baking though, that is not bad! 🙂
oh yes, baking is much more fun. We don’t get in the rut with baking like we do cooking. Cooking is such old news. LOL
Those both sound yummy, and your picture of the table setting is beautiful! I can’t pin these with no picture, but I plan to copy these recipes for future use!
I hope you love them!!!!!! let me know when you try them out
BBQ is my husbands favorite…I have a small crock pot…but, have asked for one this Christmas that is larger…
make these peanut butter balls for Christmas too…always good!
